Read his full message below:
Well, it’s been a hell of a journey…
Growing up in Vegas I could’ve never imagined where this life would take me. So many places all over the world, and all the friends we’ve made along the way.
But sometimes a journey must end for a new one to begin. We’ve been trying to keep it to ourselves, though some of you may have heard.. Sarah and I are expecting a baby very soon! The prospect of being a father and getting to watch my wife become a mother is both humbling and exciting. I look forward to this next adventure.
That said, I am going to bring this chapter of my life to an end and put my focus and energy on my family, and with that Panic! At The Disco will be no more.
Thank you all for your immense support over the years. I’ve sat here trying to come up with the perfect way to say this and I truly can’t put into words how much it has meant to us. Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or are just finding us, it has been a pleasure to not only share the stage with so many talented people but also share our time with you. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Europe and the UK for one last run together.
I love you. I appreciate you. Thank you for existing.
Panic! at the Disco – end of an era
Brendon Urie is the last of the original founders of Panic! at the Disco, namely Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, and Brent Wilson.
The band has released seven albums since 2004 while they were still in high school. Their first album, “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” with hit single “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” launched the band into stardom. The album was certified triple platinum, followed by an MTV Video Music Awards the following year.
Wilson left the band before the release of “Pretty. Odd.” Smith then unofficially left in 2013 and for good in 2015 after two albums – “Vice & Virtues” and “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!”
Panic! at the Disco has been Urie’s solo vehicle since. The band released two more albums and collaborated with various artists over the years, including Taylor Swift for her 2018 hit “Me!”
Panic! at the Disco will officially disband after their UK and EU tour, which will start in February and end in March. – WhatALife!
